you have given me the gift of this new day,
and you send me out to live it fully and well.
Help me to be attentive to your direction and leading.
If you should call me to go in some direction,
give me courage to try this new thing.
If you present me with a mysterious truth or grace,
help me to understand, or to seek understanding,
with a sense of wonder and faith.
Whatever this day may hold,
I trust that you will keep me
in all my comings and goings.
In your Son?s name, I pray. Amen.
Household Prayer: Evening
as the evening comes and the light fades,
I look for you even in the shadows.
Your love and protection stay with me through the night hours,
and I rest in your promises.
For the day as it has been,
I give you thanks.
For the gift of rest,
I offer a hymn of praise.
You love me and the whole world so greatly
that you offer us salvation.
After a night of rest,
bring me into the light of a new day.
In gratitude, I pray in Jesus? name. Amen.
